Please note – in case you would like to arrive few days earlier/leave few days later and you need a visa to enter to the country where the course will take place – you can always ask us to provide a visa invitation for a longer period. Usually this could be possible and we would be happy to assist you on that matter.

Accommodation

Participants of the event will be offered a great opportunity to experience unique accommodation – hotel on the boat! Yes, participants won’t be accommodated just in a regular hotel, they will be accommodated in the hotel…on the boat! In this way you will not just visit Amsterdam for a course but will also have a chance to enjoy one of the things that Amsterdam is famous for – its accommodation on the boats!

Participants will stay in shared rooms (single accommodation is also possible for the extra fee of 180 euro). Boat hotel also provides kitchen that can be used by participants as well. Deck of the boat can be used by participants as well.

Breakfast will be provided in the morning in the boat hotel.

Hotel on the boat is the chance to experience the true Amsterdam! Usually for the groups we rent the whole boat so there will be no other guests staying in the hotel during our stay! And that means the group can have the whole boat for the period of the program and fully enjoy the experience!

We hire different boats for our projects depending on the amount of participants. The location of the boat is varies as well. Right before the program when we will know for sure how many participants we have we will be able to determine which boat we are going to hire and will send the address and detailed description of how to reach the place to the participants. However, all the boats we usually hire are very similar to each other and fall under the description above.

Due to weather conditions sometimes we are unable to accommodate participants on the hotel on the boat – in this case the regular accommodation will be provided. If this will be the case – you will be informed about in in advance.

Visa

We provide a visa invitation for the visa to the Netherlands. Please note – visa invitation is not a visa – with the invitation that we will send, you will still need to go to the closest Dutch Consulate and apply for a visa.
Together with the visa invitation you will need to provide other documents – usually those documents include passport, passport size photo, filled application form, insurance, proof of means, proof of work/study and other documents. The list of the documents might slightly differ depending on the country where you apply for a visa. Please check the website of the closest Dutch Consulate to see what is the list of the documents you need to prepare.

In most of cases before applying for a visa you need to make an appointment at the Consulate. Some times you can only make an appointment 1-2 months in advance. We recommend you to contact the Consulate as soon as possible to make an appointment.
The fee for the visa might differ depending on the country where you apply – you might have your visa free of charge or might need to pay for it 35 or 60 euro. Those are the fees in case you apply for a visa directly at the Consulate. If you apply via Visa Center of the Dutch Consulate, Visa Center, Travel agency or another organization – those organizations might charge extra fees for their services.

If you submit all the requested documents on time the chance for the rejection of a visa is very small. In our experience the visas are mostly rejected if an applicant provides false information to the Consulate. This could be the major reason for rejections. We kindly ask you to check the documents before the application and make sure you only provide the correct information to the Consulate and in that case you most probably will receive a visa without any difficulties.

And of course if you have any questions regarding the visa application procedure we would be happy to assist at any stage of your application!
